Reasons Not Pave In The Rain

Paving is best done with clear skies and plenty of sunshine. When the weather turns sour, construction projects become increasingly challenging. Though a light sprinkle won’t pose any sort of meaningful threat, moderate rainfall usually forces paving projects to be postponed until the weather clears up. In the event of a steady downpour, paving jobs are almost always delayed. A significant downpour cools the asphalt mix and makes proper compaction quite difficult. It is imperative that asphalt mixes be added to solid bases that are unyielding and sturdy. For the sake of your project’s integrity, we will wait until the rain dissipates before resuming work.
